All 3 of my MSI rebates this year have come in the form of checks.

Oh, and a run-of-the-mill GTX 560 with a plastic HSF will beat that "top quality" "built for OCing" Hawk when it comes to overclocking without half trying. Don't understand buying the previous gen with a newer, better alternative isn't that much more.
The 560 really isn't better than the 460 though. Clock for clock they perform identically.

It just has 50-100MHz of extra OC headroom. That amounts to a potential ~5-10% extra performance for a 40% increase in cost. Until the 460s go EOL, vanilla 560s aren't a great buy imo.
